US National Intelligence Chief Confirms Washington Mulls Military Action Against Syrian Government

US Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats confirmed on Tuesday that the US is considering new attacks against the Syrian government, which would be justified by chemical weapons attacks allegedly conducted by government forces.

“As you saw the president’s response to the attack last year, this is something that is under serious discussion as we speak, but again, something that needs to be discussed in a classified session,” Coats told a Senate committee, recalling to a Tomahawk missiles strike at the Shairat airbase in Syria.

Earlier the Washington Post reported that the Trump administration had started considering new strikes on Syria last week. Initially, the Pentagon rebuffed the report. However, now it looks that the White House is really preparing for new attacks.

Reports about alleged chemical attacks by government forces in Eastern Ghouta has started appearing on a constant basis since the start of the Syrian Arab Army’s operation in the region. By March 7, government forces have achieved a notable progress against militants and liberated a large area from them.

This is impossible. America is what is wrong with Syria.

Blucross

O, and the Shia Sunni split, starting in 783 ad was caused by America ??

Paulskiy

That is conflation of two completely different things. What Jerry Hamilton was referring to was US support (logistics, air cover, arms, training, and money). It’s sad that so many are brainwashed by the current MSM propaganda war on behalf of the Deep State Have a read at this, it might help: https://www.globalresearch.ca/america-created-al-qaeda-and-the-isis-terror-group/5402881

You don’t know what you’re talking about. My words here you wouldn’t get a good sources on middle east geopolitics unless find it in Arabic.

Mario Ceva

You believe is Sunni Chiite history. Syria is a mix of Sunni Shia mix all living and fighting together against terrorist.

Attrition47

True that, most of the army is “Sunni” but all of it is Syrian.

Attrition47

It was an obsolete antagonism that the Washington barbarians tried to re-ignite. The barbarians didn’t get far and have shown that dead quarrels need mega-dollars to simulate.

John Whitehot

no, but the current tensions are caused by israel lolol.

jerry hamilton

If you don’t mind me asking, how is your media portraying the events in Syria?

Daniel Miller

Just get some C-802’s and blow their ships out of the water.

Ivan Freely

Iran will likely be the provider of AShM to Syria.

Freespirit

The TRUMP Government is NOT discussing attacking Syria.THAT unlawful invasion is already a forgone conclusion.

What they are discussing is, HOW they can deceive the world into believing America has the RIGHT to invade Syria and thus GET AWAY WITH IT

Only Russia can stop it.

Joe

Fact is there is no way America dare to invade Syria as Iran and Russia are there and US has no force strong enough to invade even a small country not to say Syria where all the fighters are battle hardened and ready to take on any Israeli or US green horns. At most they will attack safely from ships using cruise missiles and if Russia allowed it by air attacks which in this case Syria should be able to shoot them down , now that the Syria Sam air defence is in full readiness.

Let’s see. even cruise can be shot down …

Freespirit

I never mentioned anything about a ground invasion. You made an incorrect assumption about my comment

David Pryce

Let Russia put the iran report of US cooperation with ISIS on Trump’s desk
Any attack ever again by the US in Syria and the world sees this evidence u fcuks

Freespirit

That action must be backed up with the announced intent of FORCEFUL retaliation against America

American Jews like the Jews of Israel only understand FORCE or at the very least, the THREAT thereof

John Whitehot

FORCE does not necessarily mean VIOLENCE (unless you’re a 90 percentile american)

Get over that and you may catch a glimpse of what is really going on.

Freespirit

I’m sorry. Did I fail to mention my comments are for Honest, Intelligent, Objective DISCERNING Human beings, NOT Trolls and Bots?

Well, now, I have mentioned that.

John Whitehot

Not so much fascist than passive.
Something’s really wrong when they are very afraid of violent terrorism but not so much at nuclear war.

yea man I agree nuclear is much worse and they dont see that anything small can trigger it

Wanklord

As always, any new US military assault against the Assad regime will result in Russia’s lack of response or inability to counteract. Note how silent are most of the Russian news outlets (including this website) regarding the latest crash of the An-26 in Syria …interestingly enough, Tass has dedicated an article dealing with the number of Russian personnel killed in that country since 09/30/2015 -excluding for the moment the 39 servicemen killed in that accident- titled “Heroes of war: Casualties among Russian servicemen in Syria” (http://tass.com/world/993110)…moreover, Tass also reports that a criminal case was opened after the crash of that transport plane by the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation (“Russian Investigative Committee launches criminal case over plane crash in Syria” – http://tass.com/politics/993050)…an implicit admission that such plane was brought down by enemy fire or other means (i.e. EMP attack)?

Rob

Trump regime is not interested in any sort of peace in the Middle East. That is why Trump regime looks like an Antichrist like a dajjal the false messiah, liar, the deceiver. He is an evil figure, who likes human suffering, devastation and destruction.

Putin looks like a Messiah, who likes human prosperity, education and development. Who rescue and protect humanity from the brutal Zionist Antichrist (dajjal).

Manuel Flores Escobar

It is not necessary….just deploy S-400&pantsir S2 in Damascus with the purpose to protect Russian soldiers there…and end of the problem!…another question is that Russia wants to test radar air defense from Latakia/Tartous vs B2 long range stealth bomber…beside Syrian Pantsir system vs US aerial guide Bombs…..

Redadmiral

Great comment, posted something similar myself, on another sf thread

russ

I wouldn’t call 1000+ forward deployed military bases exactly passive.

When i mean passive it’s including them. Helping terrorist ? No problem. Training terrorist ? No problem. Keep provocation inch much closer to war with major nuclear powers ? Absolutely no problem.

russ

BTW, we aren’t industrious enough to be fascist ,lol.

Syrian nation is fighting against the Trump brutal regime and their blood thirsty rapist proxies Israel, ISIS, FSA, HTS, SDF, YPG etc.

Pro Trump terrorists have prepared another chemical attack in Syria.

Sadly yes. Future generations of the US will pay for all the shenanigans of those psychopaths.

Joe

Syria should get ready with their SAM to shoot down US planes flying in Syria with support of RUSSIA. Otherwise can pack up and ho home ..

It’s so obvious US is trying to prevent their terrorists proxies from bring wiped out.

Really terrorists using fake CW attcksa can get US to attack Syria.

EoF

Bingo, they know they’re losing. Hope Russia will intervene and help her ally for real this time.

Concrete Mike

Russia’s help has been real and tangible from day 1. They play the diplomatic game wich is required, why you ask?

Simple you dont want to have too many hot spots around. You deal with them when the time is right, one by one if necessary.

Look at all the gains. Surely Russia knows what ita doing and who are we,mere keyboard peons, to think we know everyrthing because we look at twitter.
Good day to you sir

Feudalism Victory

To me this decreases military action. Because if they clearly state this then it makes the cost of chemical weapons greater than any benefit and therefore illogical and irrational for assad to do so.

If one assumes assad is rational(seems that way) then it shows any purported attack is fake.

Proud White Kuffar

wtf? They have no fucking proof the same they did when they attacked the airport which saa was using against FAA and ISIS I think. they bombarded it from ships and still they did not provide any proof!! Now again and again no proof fucking american terrorists!!!!!!!!

Joe

US need to try to save their special forces attached to the terrorists ranks.

They need more time to escape.
SAA should get their SAM ready

Mario Ceva

Russia has to act to stop this possibility.

Proud White Kuffar

I agree!!!!!

Proud White Kuffar

its gone too far!

I believe both Syrian president Assad and Russians know that sooner or later they’ll intervene directly.Though so how well they’re prepared to deal with it remains to be seen.

EoF

Russia needs to help Syria for real this time. Putin told the world he has the gun, but now he must be willing to use it.

John Whitehot

bullshit.

and stop upvoting my comments goddamnit.

Here is replacement upvote ^ :)

Ivan Freely

So, the advisors, bombing runs, PMCs, intel sharing, and equipment transfers are what? A verbal promise?

Hrky75

Russia should triple down and start providing S300s, BUKs and more Pantsirs to both Syria and Iran – yesterday. It probably won’t stop US attack that’s already planned and is in the process of execution. Still, it will piss of Israel – the real power behind Washington’s moves – and let them know that Russia can make their every day life infinitely more shitty if their Neocon sleepers controlling the White House don’t start behaving…

Attrition47

Actully, the zionist occupation is a US proxy, same as the Saud perverts.

Redadmiral

A day or two ago I was pretty certain the Yankee Tomahawk attack was most definitely on the cards, they seem to have throttled back some. Then again maybe it is the lull before the storm. Was under the impression that the Iranians have been busy upgrading the S-200s some of which were deployed against the F-35(the bird strike) and the F-16 & 15 (pilot error) The S-400s are for sale, so, why not those instead along with the latest stams. Didn’t think there were any Neocon sleepers left, as they have all been very busy proclaiming their stupidity with this latest Bill which outlaws boycotting Izzy goods, if passed……….

Hrky75

I’m personally doubtful as to effectiveness of upgraded AD systems of both Syria and Iran. Both countries basically stopped investing in it some time in the early 1980s – Syria as a political choice and Iran as a result of US sanctions. Now Syria has an added negative bonus of it’s network gutted by Al Qaida attacks and IAF bombing, but then again rebuilding it will be a straight forward thing. Iran is a bit complicated. They claim numerous indigenous systems but still have 1970s Hawks and S-200s as backbone of AD network. On the other hand they did bring down a US drone, unharmed, few years ago so they are not exactly helpless. But both countries major problem is the air force – or virtual non existence of one to be precise. In order to be able to put up some kind of a fight they need a lot of modern stuff and dozens of modern planes plus 1000s of hours of training. That costs money but it also takes months or years to put into place. Without it, they can achieve an odd “bird strike” and “pilot error” but nothing more…

EoF

For the love of god Putin, you crossed the rubicon for real now. Help Syria.

ruca

So. You think Russia is not helping Syria?

leon mc pilibin

This is israhells orders to trump to save the greater israhell project,because they know eventually the Syrians will be coming for them on the stolen Golan Heights.So they must prevent that at all costs,but not theirs of course.just stupid americans will die for them.

andy l

The US are fully aware Assad is not using gas in East Ghouta, the Russian already warned them days ago about fake gas attacks but they just need a plausible excuse/pretext to sell to the dumd downed public & media shills.

Mountains

The fear! Lmao some people are shitting their pants literally… WTF! Why all the cowardice people gathered to be SAA fanboys

andy l

What does that make fanboys of the militants such as yourself – a zionist troll

Mountains

Say whatever you want to say.. Militants are effin fearless and they stop for nobody and at nothing.. It’s nobility

andy l

How can you cheerlead for a bunch of head chopping takfiris who would turn on every minority in the country & kill them all – should be ashamed. These are not moderate rebels wanting a progressive country

Mountains

They are not puppets nor hold anyone above themselves. As for their overall mental status.

I say it’s basically how any free and proud should really act and become self-confident and self-relieable.

They don’t believe in anything except themselves and this is something that is the opposite with SAA and the minion allies.

They are in official Russian and US occupation.. The rebels are the only proud men of syria and the only ones who sort of represent syria and has a syrian interest at best.

Not syria through someone else interest but just Syrian interest for syrians.

Both Red and Yellow is fully under occupation. Green is the only place where Syrians can dream free without having an authority over them

andy l

Yet they are not self reliant! they are being supported with funds & arms by the gulf countries, Turkey, Israel, US, Saudis. I dont see how overthrowing a secular inclusive society benefits anyone other than Israel

John Whitehot

the rebels aren’t even Syrians, they are ruffians and dicksuckers of israel, the us, saudi arabia, turkey, emirates, qatar and so on.

Claire Langoulant

Lets be honest… Russia and Iran are dead scared of uncle sam to a level where it actully becomes sad..

It’s sort of Horror movie type of fear and very intense

Mortal

Scared? How did you end up with that shallow assessment? Seems like you haven’t left your cave for a while. Let’s see US trying to impede Syria/Ru from fulfilling their mission, the liberation of Syria. Can’t wait to see US planes debris and the maniacal accusations following the activation of the integrated AD systems. If you didn’t get it yet, the next move is on the US, since Russia has dropped the glove. Let ’em come!

Mountains

The US don’t respect anyone unless they fight them. The Russians, Iranians and Assad and all of this bunch of assholes will just keep folding and bending over. They don’t have what it takes.

I also think if the US decides to take these nations more then 70% of their armies will vacate and flee just like how Iraq in 2003 pulled out an unseen scene where troops where just putting down their guns and leaving for the border.

This is what will happen to Russia, Iran and their other minions. They are already freaking scared and sort of lost without a bullet fired

andy l

Notice a pattern with US miltary adventures – they only ever attack weak countries mostly with 3rd rate armies like Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghan, they are cowards when it comes to nuclear armed countries. Tell me again what did they do about Russia & Crimea? nothing other than sanctions. They wont even attempt to directly attack Iran as they would lose too many men but prefer instead to use proxies.

John Whitehot

“They are already freaking scared and sort of lost without a bullet fired”

count me among the minions.

rattle-rattle-rattle, i’m even having difficulties typing.

Ivan Freely

Where are they folding and bending over? Last I checked, both Russia and Iran are still fighting, helping Syria.

andy l

Other than airstrikes or cruise missiles they cant do much – where are the boots on the ground to topple Assad. Kurds are fighting Turkey so unless they invade SAA will still prevail

Redadmiral

There is at least 6,000 in Israel probably twice that amount. Yanks could go from there with their buddies the Izzies. Iran knows they are next on the chopping block, so would expect them to step up to the task. Think Russia would do something good like hand over S 400s, not altogether certain they want to go toe to toe with Uncle Sam, maybe they will. It is a hard call. Even a harder call; what will the Yanks do if the Russians decide from the get go to go all in? Do they want a world war especially after Russia zaps a couple of their F 22s with their new laser guns………….. Interesting and scary times around the corner.

Joe Dirt

stop humping the POS S400s system

Redadmiral

Should the Honey Hair Cretin decide to allow MIC to attack Syria with their Tomahawks and chance testing their $150million F 22s in a combat theatre. I will take a great satisfaction everytime one of those S-400s glides up the Jet-pipe of an F-22……..boom, boom. As I said above, time for you to scurry back down into the sewer you were spawned in, or words to that effect

Joe Dirt

stop thinking $150 million is a lot of money to the US! We’re rich BITCH! let the F-22 fuck up your world even more! :D

Acko Manah

Yes they are scared and that is why they want to keep Assad in power. They think if Assad is in power USA is going to be tired up fighting him. That means they are safe.

Serious

You are so sacred that you choose to become a terrorist so that US let you live. XD.

Joe Doe

Russia better provide modern Air Defense System to Syria, such as S-400, Pantsir-S1 or S2 and many VERBA MANPAD, in order for Syria and SAA be able defend itself, as Russia is very relucetent to do so

Jihadist Devshirme ErdoBot

So they finally realised they are losing.

Dušan Mirić

In about six months since I am following news about Syria the USA committed several crimes against sovereignty of Syria and it would be shame for Russia to let any similar action against its ally and not to retaliate

Joe Dirt

It’s not a crime to support a revolution.

Redadmiral

Hey Dirt, that is not supporting a revolution it is supporting reaction. Yankee Scum Buckets have never supported anything else except reactionary forces through out the world. This is the reason the world is so fucked up.

Joe Dirt

Maybe “your world is fucked up” but not mine! :D

Redadmiral

The kind of reply I expected from a Yankee racist dirt bag

Joe Dirt

Enjoy your fucked up world!!! :D

Redadmiral

You live on the same planet you fucking moron. Time you climbed back down into the sewer, you managed to crawl out of

Joe Dirt

Enjoy your fucked up world! :D

Redadmiral

It would indeed. I get the impression that the Yanks believe they can do pretty much as they want as Russia have baulked at retaliation every time Yankees have committed an act of war against its ally. If the Russian Military have as Putin claims deployed laser weapons to army units, the time has come for their use against the World Bully when it unleashes its Tomahawk blitz. Or, better still give over the S-400 system to Damascus along with “Russian Contract Troops”, giving Russia “plausible deny-ability”.

John

Trolling, ……….. that’s right, trolling. The process to be more exact, is one of courage building. The US and Co. is running the bluster and unsubstantiated accusations. The Bloomberg View ran an editorial supporting a strike this week. Support among Americans is far from assured these days. So a decision making process, the type formerly conducted with great discretion, is now ensued in a manner akin to an airing of the ‘The Gong Show’. Accusations are made, conclusions arrived at and actions are taken, without a shred of veracity. Such is the state of fantasy currently gripping Occidental capitals.

It doesn’t matter whether or not an attack comes. It’s result will be failure. The fight against those who need to be cleansed will continue. E.G. will be cleared and one day the people of Syria will be free of the unwanted intervention that has plagued their nation. Go SAA. I wish well to all.

John Whitehot

besides, look at what happened when they did their “attack”. The airbase was operating normally half-day after.

Things are getting very very bad. Russia lost an extreme amount of essential personel when their transport plane was shot down on final approach yesterday. And the Russia that once always responded in kind to hostile acts against it by the West is now stunned and dazed by the sheer volume of attacks, and is literally dying the “death of a thousand cuts”.

As Putin walks backwards, the Americans walk forward. Britain 2- the USA- was constructed to inherit the British Empire, and continue its project on our planet. America is an economic, industrial, military and cultural powerhouse unlike anything ever witnessed in Human History. And now this powerhouse is under the complete control of demons.

But the power of the USA has one significant Human dimension- it operates with the implicit permission of the American people. The Deep State can lie to the people (and does), but the people have FREE WILL. Like all masses, the American people tend to cleave to the most powerful obvious ‘alphas’. This is why the Deep State spends so much time and money in America trying to get the ordinary people to ‘hate’ Putin not admire him.

The mainstream media universally portrays Putin as the new ‘Hitler’. Jews control the mainstream media- this fact isn’t even in dispute. Yet Putin rewards the jews who label him for explicit destruction. In this regard Putin is literally insane- and not one of you here can deny this.

Putin acts and thinks as if the rules controlling our world are different from what they really are. He ignores the power of GREAT EVIL. He doesn’t believe in the existence of demons, the Deep State, or depraved zionist racism. So his actions that result from his thoughts are always fatally flawed.

We had two World Wars as a result of such fatally flawed GOOD men. And now we are going to have a third- with full blown use of nuclear and plague weapons. And young people (and many moronic older males) have been programmed to welcome this species suicide.

This article above telling you what most of you have been denying- despite the warning of people such as myself- won’t make a difference. Putin is actually groomed the non-Deep State America leaders to think that direct attacks on Russia in Syria are a very GOOD idea. Putin’s actions in Ukraine were very worrying indeed, when he refused to effectively cauterise the wound on Russia’s flank- and indeed left the wound to terribly fester. But his actions in Syria and the UNSC are the clincher.

Putin is drowing under the co-ordinated malicious actions of the Deep State. He has one GOOD option- use Russian power to punch the bully so hard on the nose, the American people (and people of the West) lose all interest in backing their war-mongers. The people of the West do not want to die in a nuclear war. But Putin’s foolishness ensure that these days they never think about this.

So know this, people- under the rules of zionist agents like Team Saker (the proponents of the doctrine that Putin must never confront the bully)- we have no hope, and things are going to get very much worse very quickly.

John Whitehot

“Things are getting very very bad”

for your kind, for sure.

andy l

Stop lying there is no evidence it was shot down unless you have sources to back that claim up.

Ivan Freely

Losing 30-40 troops isn’t very, very bad. It would be if we’re dealing in the millions.

I don’t give a f..k. If I had 100 nuclear warheads, I will send them right to USA. Putin is scared but fearness is a bad ally.

Nobody seems to want to finish this off.

Whoosh….you completely missed John’s point. I too, would like to keep my precious bodily fluids.
